We have so many fond memories of Wayne and his family. It was our good fortune to know all of them, and we regret losing touch. We learned of his death at the recent Presbytery of East Iowa meeting during which a litany of memory was led to remember teaching and ruling elders who hied in the past year. Please accept our sympathy and know that you all hold a special place in our hearts and prayers. Blessings - Anita and Gary Burnett

Tonya, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. He use to always tell me stories of my dad (Earnie) when he would come in to pay his water bill. He was such a nice man and always had a smile. Please know that you are in my thoughts. Mary (Moore) Polahar
